More on Adele Hepbron

Adele Hebron Day- Silver Bay- August 1981-3

As her cake said on Adele Hepbron Day in August of 1981, Adele had 80 years, and more, at Silver Bay. She first came as a child and as an adult taught generations of Silver Bay visitors the fine points of watercolor painting. I was fortunate indeed to hear recently from Adele’s grandniece, Susan (Hepbron) Tantum, who has shared family photos of Adele and Silver Bay so we can enjoy them here.
